A single act of charity has the potential to benefit an entire community.
When Emil Lee and his family were the highest bidders at a charity auction for a live concert, the children at their local public library were the audience they had in mind.
So it was that Murrayville Library became the beneficiary of the Lee family’s generosity. Longtime users of the library, the Lee family wanted to give something back to the public library.
Singer Charlie Hope, a popular children’s musician and a Juno Award nominee, will be playing songs for the very young from her album I’m Me! after the Lees bid on the performance and then donated to the library.
Hope was nominated for a Juno award in the Children’s Album of the Year category.
Her new album features singable songs such as Cowboy Boots, Train Song, Pop Goes the Weasel, Roll Over, Every Little Star, and other favourites.
In addition to the Juno Award nomination, her album earned a Parents’ Choice Awards Silver Honor, a Preferred Choice from Creative Child Magazine and Favorite Kids’ Album Award from Boston Children’s Music.
Everyone is welcome to attend this special concert on Wednesday, Aug. 17 at 4 p.m. The Murrayville Library is located at 22071 48 Ave. Phone the library at 604-533-0339 to reserve a seat.
